Best-selling author Mark Sanborn was on the show talking about how to get extraordinary results. Knowing we all have limited time, he wasn’t suggesting out-performing others by 25-50%, just incrementally better in order to stand apart.
Mark had many valuable tips, but here are a few you can start using today:
No magic bullet. There is no quick fix. No miracle solution. Making a change takes work. When we accept this and work hard, we will start seeing the results we are hoping for.
Think; don’t react. In the information world, noise and data are constantly coming at us. It’s not often we take time out each day to just think. No e-mail. No cellphones. Just time to evaluate and plan our actions. Take 15 minutes each day and think. When we do this, it allows us to have a strategy for our life rather than just allowing life to happen to us.
Resistance is good. We love to think that the right way to go is the path of least resistance. But everyone goes that way. There’s nothing extraordinary down that path. The extraordinary happens when there is some resistance that we conquer and, in doing so, deliver impressive results.
